Abstract [en]

In recent years, environmental education has shifted to sustainable development were the

economical, ecological and social perspectives now are part of sustainable development.

Sustainable development can therefore be seen as an interdisciplinary field that is of relevance

to the social science subject. This study examines the role of the social science subject in

teaching about sustainable development as well the role of the environmental perspective.

Furthermore, the study investigates how social science teachers understand sustainable

development. The study is based on three questions, how do social science teachers talk about

sustainable development? How do social science teachers express themselves about the social

science subject role in sustainable development? How is the ecology perspective expressed in

the social science subject? The study use qualitative semi-structured interviews with upper

secondary school teachers. The results show that social science teachers interpret sustainable

development from the perspectives, ecology, economic and social as well as Brundtland's

interpretation of generations' imprints. The study also shows that the ecological perspective is

considered less relevant in the social science subject than economics and social. The

conclusion is that the environmental perspective disappears to some extent in the social

science subject but that sustainable development is nevertheless a relevant subject to create an

active citizen and understand the entirety of the concept.
